Rhea Ripley To Compete With Dominik Mysterio At NXT Heatwave

Rhea Ripley Dominik Mysterio on WWE Raw

Rhea Ripley is set to be in action with her Dirty Dom at NXT Heatwave.

Lyra Valkyria blindsided Ripley following the main event of the August 8th episode of NXT, where Dominik Mysterio retained the North American Championship against Dragon Lee thanks to help from Mami.

After the bell rang, Ripley got in the ring to join Dominik in gloating about the victory and confronting Rey. Running in from the crowd, Valkyria knocked Ripley out of the ring, leaving herself, Lee, and the Hall of Famer to stand tall.

Taking to social media after NXT went off the air, Valkyria responded to the post stating that she took out the Women’s Champion with the statement “Yes I Did.”

Rhea Ripley wants revenge

Now on the 15th of August edition of NXT the Women’s World Champion laid down a challenge for NXT Heatwave which will take place on the 22nd of August. Ripley wanted both Valkyria and Dragon Lee to meet her and Dominik Mysterio in a tag team bout and the match was soon made official.

The bout could come as a welcome distraction for Ripley and Mysterio as the dissension in The Judgment Day continued on Monday Night Raw as miscommunication between Damian Priest and Finn Balor cost the Irish star his match with Cody Rhodes.

Rhea Ripley has also commented on the upcoming appearance. In regards to Mysterio, the North American Champion still hasn’t made many friends on the main roster.
